Just wanted to share with you another episode of Heroes of Sanctuary. In this episode I show you a group tank build for MP10. The build is demonstrated on MP10 Azmodan fight solo, where I tank everything in the room, including all the adds, and hit just over 91K burst armor. This is a really fun tank build, check it out.
You do realize that with proper gearing and life steal. You can tank efficient.
Why spend all your cash getting 91k burst armor and being useless while soloing?
When you can spend your cash getting a dps dual wield build with tons of life steal?
U tank just as fine as dps, if not better + You can actualy solo MP10 ubbers and keyruns with ease?
I dont understand it.
Thanks for your feedback. I guess the idea of it is to be a fun uber tank. The 91k burst is a function of the game mechanics, not the gear. The burst tank comes from the number of mobs you land in when you leap and the leap bonus mechanic that changed in 1.0.5, combined with a decent base armor that all tanks should have.
I understand your point, and if this was your only char and only build I would not recommend it. I titled the build "Group Tank" to indicate it is for grouping only, and during the video mentioned the lack of solo capability up front. It is for those who enjoy being the best of a pure build. I don't agree that a DPS tank can tank better than a dedicated tank build, doesn't make sense to me.
Overall, it is based on exploring the mechanics of tanking and seeing what is possible, as well as providing a strong uber tank for MP 10 group play.
This build cost me less than 1M gold with my existing gear in place. So for me, when I want to solo, I simply swap a couple pieces of gear and my build and go solo.
Again, I appreciate your point, and I agree with you, if you want a balanced generalist build, this is not it. This is a group tank build for MP 10.
